US: Columbia Basin potato processors suffered from strangled ports

Columbia Basin potato processors slowed down during the West Coast port impasse, making fewer potatoes into french fries, hash browns and other potato products shipped around the world. Dockworkers reached a tentative contract agreement Friday, but the backlog at the ports could take months to unjam. Washington and Oregon potatoes processed as of the end of January dropped by about 6 percent, according to recently released data from the U.S. Department of Agriculture.
